No Malawi baby for Madonna

Malawi offiials have denied Madonna's request to adopt a three year old girl. They say Madonna needs to fulfill the residency requirement before she an adopt.
Why doesn't Madonna build a hospital, school or computer lab in Malawi in addition to trying to adopt?

I agree. The only possible reason these celebrities have for adopting African children is the press coverage. If they truly care about the people of Africa, they need to work to help improve life in Africa, not just take children to the West and raise them with no sense of their cultural heritage.

Re: No Malawi baby for Madonna

Wait, I thought Madonna WAS building a girls' academy in Malawi... And I'm a bit confused on the whole residency requirement; how was David adopted if that law was in place? Or is it a brand new rule?

Re: No Malawi baby for Madonna

Madonna was able to get around the rule ($$$$???) the first time. The judge gave her a break. This judge took a harder line, demanding Madonna live in Malawai for at least a year. Do you think she will move there?

Also, the fact that Madonna is now a single parent did not sit well with the judge.
I am sure Madonna's heart is in the right place, but you an't pick out a child and take her home the way you buy a car and drive it away.

Yeah, i thought so aswell

Hey, rules are rules ( with her now being a single mom and all ) ...but i think it's in poor taste that the poor girl was basicaly told Madonna was her new mom and has spent what seems like allot of time with Madonna since arriving in Malawi. Maybe there the ones now looking for the press coverage .

Re: No Malawi baby for Madonna

Maybe the government doesn't want all the negative publicity coming towards them on this matter and have got the judge to reject Madonna.

Maybe she just wanted another child, you know. And she's too old to have them naturally.
That's still the mean reason people choose to adopt, not to help the country.
I don't get why Madonna keeps on getting bad press for wanting to adopt whereas Angelina Jolie doesn't.

Well of course she's not going to live there, she does have her other kids to think about after all. Anyway, it is strange that they have suddenly changed their mind about enforcing that part of the law.

I think Angelina gets bad press for her rainbow adoptions too but then again I'm not particularly bothered by them. Damn if the kids don't have parents willing and able to look after them, they could do alot worse than living with prancing Hollywood star.

Cause Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are the saviors of the world.

People forget that Angelina Jolie really is a huge bitch herself, always has been, always will be. I mean seriously, she is "too good" and above everyone to do the red carpet press now, bitch please.

Re: No Malawi baby for Madonna

I all for adoption but these DUMB ASS BITCHES need to just go down the street and find their nearest adoption agency here in the STATES! Look in your own backyard and help chidren before you go across the entire globe trying to adopt.

DUMB ASS BITCHES! lol

I like what Mia Farrow did. She helped children and even went to FOSTER CARE.

SO MADONNA AND ANGELINA, you're FIRED! LOL i like them both but am totally for them adopting here instead of across the world.

Thank you. Adoption is a personal descision. Loving a child who is not your own flesh and blood is in itself selfless and anyone who chooses to adopt should be applauded. No one has the right to dictate where or whom others should/could adopt
